Decorating for Halloween is fun, but it can sometimes feel a little tacky. Naturally, if you're only using fake cobwebs and other plastic décorations, chances are you're not creating a spooky haunted house look to match your stylish interior. If, however, you mix those fun seasonal buys with chic vintage-inspired Halloween décor accents, you'll have elevated your décor to create an elegant but frightening look.

What are the components of a vintage-inspired haunted house? Think dark candlelit spaces, skulls, and dusty antique pieces that look like they haven't been touched in 100 years, plus vintage serveware to match. Then, just add a few fake cobwebs, pumpkins, and other seasonal accents, and you'll be set. To get started, we handpicked 13 vintage-inspired Halloween décor picks that are guaranteed to give you chills. No matter the theme of your Halloween party, your guests are guaranteed to be at least a little spooked.
